Title: Port Phillip Bay Project 1992-1998
Id: 196
Acronym: Port Phillip Bay Project
Investigator(s): Stephen Walker
CSIRO Oceans & Atmosphere - Hobart [details]

Description: The Port Phillip Bay Environmental Study was commissioned by Melbourne Water in 1991 to investigate the ecology, physical processes, nutrient, and toxicological levels in the Bay, which is an almost landlocked marine area immediately adjacent to the City of Melbourne. Several CSIRO Divisions contributed to the $12m study, which involved over 40 separate research tasks aimed at determining the best strategies for managing inputs to the Bay in the light of the fate of inputs from land activities such as sewage plants, industry, agriculture, and urban sources, and their subsequent distribution into sediments and the ocean. The final report from the study was published in 1996.
Years: 1992 to 1998
